the update from here

Last weekend was fun-fun-fun, from start to finish. Greg and I went up to Whistler on Saturday morning, arriving at around noon, and the afternoon was spent in creative mayhem. The workshop went well, though I think I tried to cram too much into just three hours. As you can see, it was an all-ages fun fest in the gallery loft.

I learned a lot about pacing and the variation in what the individual artists achieve. I love that they made it their own.

There's a reason it's called White Dog Studio Gallery. Yes, it's a working gallery and yes, there's a white dog! (That's my brown blur behind Luna, and Penny, busily being a gallerist, behind her!)

A dog-friendly studio gallery in the beautiful Whistler mountain environment with an outdoor playground everywhere you look? My fantasy place. With that in mind, Sunday dawned pretty much perfect, so we took both dogs and headed into the hills to go snowshoeing. We didn't see another soul all morning.

I kind of hated coming home after that!

It looks like a great time was had by all and I love the scenery! You take such amazing shots of nature and its landscapes. I love that white dog, what kind of dog is it? :)

Me, too.
I hated coming home after Vail.
But, yet, if you believe in Jesus,
once you croak,
you'll never haveta go home:
you can stay on the mountainside fo'eva.

I looove RITErs;
I looove giving'm new opportunities
for thots/ideas/structural integrity,
taking'm in a completely-new-direction:

Why else does a moth fly FROM the night
than to a bold, attractive candle Light??
Don’t let His extravagant Brilliance be extinguished.
You’re creative, yes?
Then, fly-away with U.S. to the antidote…

Whether you obtain moralityB4mortality to wiseabove
or just glean tantalizing specimens for thy next best seller,
you shall find in our blogs a lotta (subliminal) moxie
which has taken this sinfull mortal yeeeeers to compile!
I lay it ALL out for you, dear, with All-Star-Oxygems:

Wouldn’t ya love an endless eternity
of aplomBombs falling on thy indelible cranium?
An XtraXcitinXpose with no zooillogical-expiration-date?
An IQ much higher than K2 all-go-rhythm?
An anti-establishment, savvy victory +
avant-guarde-humility =
you’re promptly astonished, ain’tcha?
withe extraordinarily explosion of maelstrom mellowdramatic??
Here’s what the exquisite, prolific GODy sed
(with a most-excellent-detector of bull§ht):

“Faith, hope, and love,
the greatest of these is love –
jump into faith…
and you’ll VitSee with love”
Doesn’t matter if you don’t believe (what I write);
God believes in you.

Meet me Upstairs, girl, where the Son never goes down
from a super-passionate, lucrative iconoclasm where you’ll find
of deluxe-HTTP [<- pi] opportunities for excitement BTW.

Do it. Do the deed, dude. Sign into the Big-Zaftig-House.

PS “It is impossible that anyone should NOT receive all that they have believed and hoped to obtain; it gives Me great pleasure when they hope great things from Me and I will always give them more than they expect”
-our Lord Jesus to Saint Gertrude

...think about it, girl:
if 1-outta-1 perishes in 88ish years;
then, how WE sinfull mortals have lived
is where we go for eternity, Up or Down,
Seventh-Heaven or the Abyss o'Misery.
Satan's working overtime now precisely
cuzz he knows his time's short.
